This installment of Rhythm Nation takes a look into the Latin music scene in the 1970’s at the Woodstock Festival and during the early twentieth century in the New York neighborhood of Harlem.

The groundbreaking work of Mario Bauza and his brother Machito and his Afro-cubans, the first popular big band of Latin musicians to light up the New York Clubs of the early 1940’s.

From there, we take a look at more recent stars like Carlos Santana. Find Rhythm Nation here as a podcast but the Radio Show runs on Eradio WMCR Monday’s 3:00-5pm and Friday’s 11-12:30pm.
